May 3: Luray Triathlon Race Prep Clinic

USAT Sanctioned Event LogoGeared toward beginner and novice triathletes, the Luray Triathlon Race Preparation Clinic will help you prepare for the Luray International and Sprint Triathlons on 8/16 and 8/17 as well as other short course triathlons with open water swims. The clinic includes course discussion; a lifeguard supervised open water practice swim in beautiful Lake Arrowhead; and a chance to ride and run the scenic bike and run courses.

For the open water swim portion, coaches will be there to talk briefly about open water swimming and give tips for success, but most of all the practice is an opportunity for YOU as the athlete to get in open water in a safe, lifeguarded, stress free, non-competitive environment that will bolster your confidence come race morning. Course will be marked with buoys and you are welcome to swim multiple laps of the course within the allotted time frame. Please note that this is not an individual stroke clinic.

For the bike and run portions, coaches will discuss biking and running then give you the opportunity to practice on the Luray Triathlon course in a non-competitive environment.  Finally, the clinic wraps up with a discussion and examples of transition area.
